Don't Look Back is a short game I made in 2009.
Some reviews of the original version:
"A perfect example of doing more with less" - The Escapist
"Every game with a lead character necessarily has a moral. Every single one. It's just rare that the moral is so uplifting." - Jayisgames
"It may be a pop song, but it´s like a Smashing Pumpkins single or something, from a concept album." - PlayThisThing

Fixes a bug with button size on iPhones.
This game was very well made. I highly recommend it to anyone. At first I didn't get the story, but then I realized at the end, it was based off a Greek myth, where a man travelled into Hades after his new wife died from a snake bite on their wedding day to ask Hades to return her. He said that he should go back out of Hades, his wife will follow, but if he looks back to her before they are completely out of Hades, his wife will disappear and be returned to the underworld. He did as he was told, but when he saw the light of day, he couldn't wait any longer so he looked back to see his wife one last time as she disappeared forever. The story in the game is a bit different, and you should definitely play it! The controls confused me sometimes, but that is not unusual for me because I confuse left and right sometimes. The game is free, so it is worth a try, I think it's a game anyone could like.
LUV THIS GAME!!!!!!!! OMG
This game is perfect. This game inspires me. I don't care what people say about, "Oh, I don't like the graphics, oh I hate this game, it's too short" , no no no no no. SHUT UP AND PLAY THIS GAME! Just kidding people. You don't have to. I am just trying to express my feelings towards this 'old timic' game. This game reminds me of the old times when I was 7 and I had windows xp paint where I made RED pixels on the screen and made a movie on it with my imagination. Notice I said RED, because this game also has red shading color. Very awesome game Terry. You should make more like this. You don't have to, but this is AMAZING!!! 😄😄 The music is a killer. It gives me the chills when I hear this peaceful art of music. I seriously love the atmosphere. 5 STARS!!!!😄
20 minutes well spent!
Don't listen to bad players who cant beat 2 enemies or 5. This game is a jewell, beautiful in every aspect and with great psychological metaphors. The fact that a game is 90 hours long doesn't mean it has a deep story like all the silly recent RPGs or the endless FF saga with nothing to offer but a complete waste of time in a story that every time makes you think you are the last hope to save the universe in a crucial time. Play this game and learn a valuable lesson about life and death.
